You have 2 holes in the overflow, then one is for the input and one is for the output. Or do you have dual overflows?

Which CPR overflow do you have? Here are some pics of my CPR 1200 overflow to show you some plumbing tips.the first two are pics from the overflow to the sump and the last is the pipe from my return pump back into the tank. Hope that helps.

This is what it looks like.

That's the 1200 dual overflow. Same one I have in those pics. You will have to plumb both pipes from that into your sump .

Look at what came in the mail!

Also, I started filling up the tank only to find out that the sump can only fit through the top.

So I removed most of the water that I put in.

I just need to get my plumbing (today or tomorrow), and I am waiting for my sump to come in the mail (most likely Monday). I also need my two aqualifters (probably Tuesday).

Thank you. I will probably start adding water tomorrow, and then finish with that on Tuesday. On Tuesday, I should have all of my equipment going.

The aqualifter just needs some airline tubing, nothing special.

How would you all recommend rinsing sand? I bought some yesterday. I will probably need more eventually though.

All I did was put the sand in a drum, added RO water, and stirred with my hands. Then emptied the water. Then added more water, stirred again...repeat until the water wasn't cloudy anymore.

I'm sure there's a better way, but that worked for me.

I did mine about 20lbs at a time in 5g bucket. Kept stirring it up until it ran clear. repeat.
